Drainfield water doesn't?
I'm not going to bore you here but neither are good solutions, and the alternative is worse (think streets of San Francisco). Effluents from the toilet and other drains in the home may not be any more contaminated than grey water. All discharges contain not only bacteria, but a lot of deadly pathogens. Both carry chemicals, detergents, grease, lint, plastic balls from toothpaste, exfoliated skin cells, on and on. The septic tank separates and contains the solids and is supposed to allow the good organisms to convert the solid wastes to a less dangerous product that can be shipped to Alabama along with all the other toxic wastes we generate, unless the anti-bacterial chemicals in the soaps and detergents kill them before they can do their job. This promotes the bio-mat problem. The septic tank and drain field system sucks but people that live in areas without proper sewer treatment have to do something. So does applying fertilizer and weed killing chemicals on our lawns. It all eventually ends up in our drinking water or into the lakes and oceans (food supply). I guess we are still light years ahead of vast areas of this planet. https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/daily-waste-indias-urban-streets-9364812
